    I am trying to decide between Notability and Notes Plus for my iPad. What I like most about Notes Plus is its built in web browsing ability. When you want to access the Internet while taking notes, you do not have to press the home button or move out of Notes Plus. There is a button on the right side that allows you to access the Internet on another page, and even highlight data from the web and copy it into your notes. Can someone tell me if Notability has this same feature? Thank you.

    Yes, Notability allows you to access the Web in-app. From by bit of playing around, it appears you can put a whole web page in the Notability document (like a screen shot) and/or you can copy text to put into a Notability document.

    That's about all I know about it - haven't played with it much. But, bottom line is, yes, there is access to the web from within the Notability app.

    Thank you. I appreciate your reply. Notes Plus is a little more costly than Notability, so I need to compare features vs. costs for the two apps. Do you know if Notability has a diagram recognition feature? On Notes Plus if you draw a circle, e.g., it will automatically make it perfect circle or square, or whatever.

    Keeping in mind that I am not that familiar with Notability - I could not find where a drawn circle could be auto-converted into a machine-drawn circle (or square or whatever).

    Maybe someone else knows, but I don't think Notability has this feature.

    I have notability and there is a "Figure" option where you can create shapes.
